    Will magic bands purchased from Amazon still work at resorts and parks ?

    Hi Judy,
    It's always nice to see friends return to planDisney. In less than three weeks you will be driving under the Walt Disney World arches, signaling your arrival at The Most Magical Place on Earth. Cue the happy tears and turn up the Disney jams! 

    My front porch welcomes Amazon deliveries weekly. For past Walt Disney World Resort vacations, Amazon has helped me acquire princess dresses, Star Wars accessories, matching t-shirts, autograph books, Minnie ears, and more. Amazon is the place to find many things for your upcoming vacation, Judy, though I do not recommend purchasing a MagicBand from anywhere other than Disney. That's because MagicBands are nontransferable. Even if the MagicBand was never used, you run the risk of it not linking to your My Disney Experience account if it was previously linked to another account. There's also no way to tell the age of a MagicBand purchased on Amazon, which indicates its battery life.  

    MagicBands can be purchased on shopDisney or at retail stores throughout Walt Disney World Resort. Disney Pin Traders at Disney Springs offers a large selection of MagicBands that are ready to link to your My Disney Experience account. You can also use MagicBands from previous vacations. I've heard MagicBand batteries are supposed to last two years, but I've been using mine since 2018!    

    Another option for accessing the magic on your upcoming trip is a Disney MagicMobile pass. On my most recent trip, the Disney MagicMobile service essentially turned my Apple Watch into a MagicBand, which was super cool!     

    As your vacation countdown continues, I highly recommend asking Alexa to play Disney hits while you pack. Hope to see you at planDisney again soon!

    The magic is calling...
